What to do...


In the event of an Expected Death

If the death is expected, and occurs at home, you will need to contact the family doctor (or Shropdoc- if out of hours).


Once a doctor (or medical practitioner) has attended, please contact us and we will be able to provide guidance and support and will, when you are ready, despatch our private ambulance and accept the deceased into our care.

If the death occurs in a hospital, hospice, nursing or residential home, the staff will contact the doctor and the person named as next of kin. With your permission they will contact us accordingly.


The doctor will normally issue a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death together with an advice notice which informs you of how and where to register.


For more information please visit our page on Registering a Death.

I would like to thank all at C J Williams for the lovely service you provided for my mum, you were all so nice and kind at this difficult time.
